POST 1200 ! ! !


Well I met 48HP today to pick up that AMG wheel and see he rescued 500SEL AMG.

WOW What a beautiful car! This lady really loved it! Very clean all the way around and the Engine bay you could literally eat off it. The rest of the car was beautiful too. His trunk stayed up even with the spoiler and the Triangle on it. The inside of the trunk was immaculate. Everything was looked at and taken care of by the PO.

So I picked up the AMG Steering wheel from him and it is in BEAUTIFUL shape there are some pics in the next post and I am going to mount it this morning. I had to get new mounting screws, (Thank You Lowe's) and I needed to get a 10MM Allen to remove the Wheel nut.

I first stopped my the Aalden Bros Pick N Pull where Teutone owns the tool concession there, and we had a nice chat and got caught up from his trip abroad. I also bought a 1/2" breaker bar from him and a set of 3 3/8" drive long extensions.

All in all it was a great day. Today I am supposed to go back down and pick up two sets of Penta's. I hope the guy comes through.

I will for sure. It feels so much better in my hands. Smaller wheel, fatter too...

I just took it around the block and this thing is sheer joy...

Perfection CAN be perfected even more!

Feels like a go kart compared to the school bus steering wheel, as cascade put it.

48hp, submit your AMG to the calendar!

Wow I love that sedan. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY love it. I loved it before I saw it. I love it so much, 48HP must surely HATE it compared to how much I LOOOOOVE it! I would sell my wife's wagon and stick the occasional extra kid in the trunk if it meant that I could see that sedan in my driveway every day.

If anyone from over there ever comes over here please trade cars with 48HP and bring it near to me so that I can strip down and lay on it after the sun has warmed it's voluptuous flanks. I'll pay.

Is it me or does that rear AMG bumper piece have a bad wave/warp effect to it? Was it by a heater when it was stored or something?

Either way, that is just awesome.

No, you're spot on. There is an interesting soft arch on both the right and the left side of the rear. I'll pull a straight edge to it and see just how much.

mclare, can you check your spare if it's got the same characteristic?
